If only someone passed some kind of law making it illegal to bomb and burn churches.
First in Pakistan, notorious home of love, peace and tolerance
A mob of hundreds of Muslim men attacked and burnt an 82-year-old church and an adjoining school in northwest Pakistan during a protest against an anti-Islam film, sparking concerns among the minority Christian community.
Truly what better way could there be for Muslims to show their outrage at disrespect for religion than by burning a church.
"The St.Paul Church, its school and the houses of the principal and pastor along with a vehicle were burned by a mob," he said in a statement released by Pakistan-based rights group World Vision In Progress (WVIP). Several people staying inside the church complex were beaten
What can you do, Muslims take respect for religion seriously and no one was going to stop them from showing their full measure of respect for that church.
And in Nigeria, Muslims continued their long tradition of religious tolerance by bombing a church killing a woman and 8-year-old boy.
Another attack has targeted Christians in Nigeria's Muslim north. A suicide bomber blew himself up outside St. John's Catholic Church in Bauchi, the capital of the federal state of the same name in northern Nigeria.
Boko Haram, the Islamic terrorist group that the State Department assures is just upset over poverty and martial law, was behind the attack and while it would be tempting to attribute this to Mo Movie Outrage, this is part of the Islamic genocide of Nigerian Christians.
Attacks in central and northern Nigeria blamed on Boko Haram have killed some 1,400 people since 2010.
It's almost like Muslim respect for religion/murderous violence predates the Mo Movie.
Meanwhile former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo blamed the rise of Boko Haram on the fall of Gaddafi.
One major external factor he said gave rise to Boko Haram was the fall of the late Libyan strong man, Muamma Gaddafi following the uprising in the North African country.
He said the killing of the United States ambassador to Libya and three other Americans by a mob protesting an alleged blasphemous video on Islam, could not be devoiced from the Gaddafi saga owing to the current general instability.
“When the man fell, those that had been trained in Libya during the time of Gaddafi from other countries, moved out with their weapons.With their training, they started wrecking havoc.
The overthrow of Gaddafi has been the result of the killing of US ambassador in Libya; instability, which is the connection. We knew that there is going to be a price to pay because of the way that it all went in Libya. At the end of the day, all of us in Africa and all those who masterminded the way it happened will have to pay the price and we are now paying that price,” the former leader asserted.
The timing for the events don't really match up, but he presumably means that Boko Haram's violence intensified with new recruits after the fall of Gaddafi.
